Full Circle Writing

On May 10, Ms. Sawatzky’s creative writing  class wrote short plays based on fairy tales. Thanks to Trent Arterberry, guest author, who lead a workshop on writing scripts.

Mr. Martin’s drama class then did a workshop with Trent, bringing the scripts to life. The video-taped performances were shared with the script writers, who enjoyed seeing their words jump off the page.

Concert Band 9/Senior Winds

Throughout this year, our instrumentalists in both Concert Band 9 and Senior Winds have been able to rehearse, with following all safety precautions, in preparation for our recordings.  On Friday April 16, both bands recorded their festival set for the Virtual Vancouver Island Concert Band & Orchestra Festival, that is normally held in Port Alberni.  After a few weeks of waiting, we have our adjudication and both bands have received a SUPERIOR in their playing level!  Congratulations to our Band Students!
